Harold Perrineau has been busy for much of 2012. In addition to starring in episodes of television series like Sons of Anarchy, Georgia and The Wedding Band (on which he stars), he has also been busy on the feature front with roles in movies like Seeking Justice, Transit, and Sunset Stories. He still has Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty coming out in December and has completed work on upcoming projects such as Ric Roman Waugh’s Snitch and the sci-fi comedy Sexy Evil Genius, but he continues to think toward the future and today has landed another new part.
Variety has gotten word that Perrineau is the latest actor to join the cast of Ten, David Ayer’s take on the classic Agatha Christie story Ten Little Indians. He joins a great cast that already includes Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Mireille Enos and Olivia Williams. The script, which was written by X-Men Origins: Wolverine scribe Skip Woods, is about a DEA task force that plans to rob a cartel safe house by pretending they are on a raid. After the job is a success it looks like everything is going to be all right…but then they start getting picked off one by one.
While I haven’t thought much about this project since it was first announced, since seeing End of Watch, Ayer’s incredibly impressive latest title, my attitude has completely changed. It seems that the director has gathered a good number of really solid actors for his next film and hopefully it will pay off just as well as his last movie.
